3 stars Alusa Fallax put out a couple of singles in 1969 - neither of which I have heard - but didn't get a chance to put out an album until 1974, once the Italian prog boom had kicked in. It's actually rather a shame that the album got lost in the wake of the flood of RPI albums in a comparative vein which had preceded it, since unlike many one-album-wonder bands the group had been formed well before the explosion in the Italian prog scene, and yet seems to have failed to find much more success than bands which were thrown together a mere 3

It's particularly sad because the album itself is really quite good; it's the usual melange of early Jethro Tull and Trespass-era Genesis, of course; the flute playing recalls Tull, the acoustic guitar recalls Genesis, the singer is passable and the compositions are rather enchanting. What makes it a bit more compelling than typical efforts in this field is the enthralling emotional crescendos the music reaches, the band showing a masterful command of mood. A decent debut, which really cried out for a followup to truly distil and crystallise the band's sound - but it was not to be. A shame.

Warthur | 3/5 |
